The blue-green alga, Synechococcus R2, is transformed to antibiotic resistance by chimeric DNA molecules consisting of Synechococcus R2 chromosomal DNA linked to antibiotic-resistance genes from Escherichia coli. Chimeric DNA integrates into the Synechococcus R2 chromosome by homologous recombination. The efficiency of transformation, as well as the… CONTINUE READING
